A detail caught Jan Howard’s eye when she saw a brochure for INB’s You Name It Savings Accounts.
“I saw that they gave the option to round up your change and put that in your savings account, and I liked that,” she said.
Jan decided to open a You Name It Savings Account to save for an upcoming home landscaping project.
With a You Name It account, you can choose a target date and set up automatic deposits into the account. Then, on the target date, the amount you saved is transferred to your checking account to be used on your goal project, trip or other expense.
You can also participate in the INB Pocket Change program – as Jan did. With Pocket Change, you can elect to round up each debit card purchase, up to $9. INB will move that extra change into your savings account at the end of each day, so you can watch your savings grow.
When you sign up for Pocket Change with your INB checking and a You Name It Savings Account, INB will match your Pocket Change transfers, up to $100 for the first 90 days.
Two Good Names: ‘Extras’ and ‘Christmas’
Now, Jan has two You Name It Savings Accounts at INB – one for Christmas expenses and the other one for “extras.”
“I spend each winter in Arizona for three to four months, so one year I used it to buy my airline ticket there. This year, after I got to Arizona, I wanted to get a new sofa, and the money was there for me,” she said.
“You’d be surprised by how much money goes into that account; it really adds up,” she noted. “I would recommend this account; it’s a good way to save for special things you want or a trip you want to take.”
Banking at INB keeps life easier for Jan as she travels.
“I like a small town bank; INB is very serviceable, and they know all their customers,” she said. “If I’m somewhere and I need something, all I have to do is call.”
